This is my 4th blog about feature films, TV series and documentaries with clothes of mainly kids and teens in Western movies. I collect here informations, trailer videos, low-res images and personal comments/ratings.
Family film starring Gene Wilder -Year: 1971 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Mike ~11 ? -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low ? -Rating: 5/10 ? -Rating:***** -Comment: I think this is Paris Themmen in a yellow shirt, beige pants, blue scarf, white boots and a white Cowboy hat. Also a light brown jacket with fringes. He also wears a blue white checkered shirt and red scarf with a black flat Cowboy hat on.
I have seen this movie many years ago and don’t remember all scenes.
I prefer the 2005 remake starring Johnny Depp (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) which I even own on DVD.
Also a chubby boy in Lederhosen and traditional German clothes (Lederhosen blog rating 3).
Rating 5 for now but needs to be rechecked the next broadcasting.
Great story by Roald Dahl. I don’t like Gene Wilder but R.I.P.
Western starring John Wayne -Year: 1962 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: boys, girls ~9 -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: b&w -I own: yes, TV recording -Clothing occurence: low -Rating: 3/10 -Rating:*** -Comment: Some boys and girls, around 9yo, some few a bit younger, in an one-room schoolhouse. Mainly Mexican looking boys. Shirts and pants without suspenders. Also at least one older teen girl. Most or all have pigtails.
Part 2 of the recent Western TV weekend.
Typical b&w western. I think very few scenes of the kids. Also starring James Stewart.
TV Western series 1955-1975 -Year: 1974 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Lester ~8 -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: yes, TV recording -Clothing occurence: medium -Rating: 3/10 -Rating:*** -Comment: I think this is 8 or 9 yo Todd Lookinland aka Todd Lookingland (“The Brady Bunch”, probably the brother of Mike) in beige pants with suspenders and in a beige corduroy suit with a bow tie at the end. Several scenes with him.
I don’t like this young actor and his haircut. There are definitely better episodes. What else should I say about this? Nice one-room schoolhouse, but I don’t remember other kids here. Maybe I have missed the beginning (not sure).
Western starring Stewart Granger -Year: 1965 -Country: Germany, Yu -Who in clothing: boys, girls ~5-10 -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: yes, partly TV recording -Clothing occurence: low -Rating: 5/10 ? -Rating:***** -Comment: Some, mainly younger kids, boys and girls in different clothes. A boy in beige pants with H-style suspenders, one in a brown suit, another in pants (jeans) and a green shirt. The kids are singing, conducted by Heinz Erhardt.
Girls in pigtails, some in sailor-style dresses. Also some women.
Some other scenes of (this and/or other) kids, but mainly from a distance and in the background.
Starring Pierre Brice, Terence Hill and many others. A similar Karl May movie has been aired before that (coming soon).
Rating 5 only. Somehow I never paid much attention to Winntou movies and most I don’t like.
Disney family film -Year: 1988 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Randy ~9 ? -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low ? -Rating: 5/10 ? -Rating:***** -Comment: Jason Clarke Adams aka Jason Adams in a beige Western shirt and I think dark pants with brown chaps and a beige (straw ?) hat. Also shirtless. Also starring Jerry O’Connell (shirtless as well). Set in the 1950s.
I found this by coincidence searching for a related (Jean Shepherd / A Christmas Story) movie starring Damon Raskin (for my overalls blog).
Quite interesting but I think few or very few good scenes. Also bedroom scenes, soon on my other blog.
Rating 5-6 for now only.
Today’s Winnetou movies and Gunsmoke episode coming soon.
Western starring Randolph Scott -Year: 1948 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Johnny ~11, woman -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: b&w -I own: no -Clothing occurence: medium ? -Rating: 6/10 ? -Rating:****** -Comment: Gary Gray in tight, dark, striped pants, I think not jeans, a vest and a flat hat. Also a woman with a Cowboy hat, also riding.
I didn’t had the time to check the complete movie. But it looks interesting.
Pic 2 at the beginning, pic 1 shortly later. Obviously several good scenes of Gary.
Warner Archive DVD, so probably a DVDr. I think, I won’t buy it.
Western starring Bill Elliott -Year: 1949 -Country: USA -Who in clothing: Doll ~29 -Available on DVD: yes
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: medium ? -Rating: 3/10 ? -Rating:*** -Comment: I think this must be Marie Windsor as fugitive Doll Brown in a vest, Cowboy hat and green scarf.
I have checked this some time ago and can’t say much more yet. 90 minutes Trucolor.
Obviously a typical Western for it’s time. I don’t remember younger actors in here.
Family series, 458 ep -Year: 1997-1998 -Country: Argentina -Who in clothing: boys, girls ~8-13 -Available on DVD: no ?
–B&W or color: color -I own: no -Clothing occurence: low * -Rating: 5/10 -Rating:***** -Comment: Several boys and girls and some few grown-ups in Western clothes including hats in episode 236. Not sure about women and if chaps. Needs to be rechecked.
As announced on my overalls blog (rating 8 for many girls and boys in overalls).
Good and funny saloon scenes but only known in this episode. Good costumes, also the dresses of the girls.
